The Lake Highland Track & Field program has a long history of success, winning its first Boys District Championship in 1972. Since then, the program has accumulated 2 additional Boys District Championships, 8 Girls District Championships, and 6 Girls Regional Championships. The Highlanders have also won 6 individual State Championships. 

To promote continued success, our program focuses on 3 core components – discipline, strength, and development. 

Discipline: Athletes should show discipline at the track, in the weight room, in the training room, academically, and in their personal lives.

Strength: Athletes are encouraged and coached to hone their physical and mental strength.

Development: Through their experience with Track & Field, student-athletes learn important lessons of responsibility, accountability, time management, commitment, and consistency. They also acquire the transferable skills of a strong work ethic and teamwork vs. individual performance, while celebrating improvements and achievements – no matter how big or small. 

By focusing on discipline, strength and development, we build a team that is focused, goal-oriented, hardworking, respectful, and encouraging.

The Highlanders currently train and host meets at the Holloway Track & Field Stadium on the LHPS campus. With our state-of-the-art facilities, LHPS has built a reputation for hosting competitive meets in the regular season and often hosts post-season competitions.
